Dubious term America. If comparing countries, they should say USA. Otherwise America could refer to North, Central or South America.

Does 'Amerika' here refer to the continent(s) or to the United States of America?

Ok, I just picked greater to translate groter and it was counted as a mistake. Maybe the word isn‘t exactly the perfect fit, yet is given as one of the possible correct translations, until you actually use it... why?

Because when you click on a word you get hints and hints are exactly that. It is up to you to formulate a correct sentence. Greater does not work in this context:

Similar when you click on dan the hints are: than, then, but. Only than is correct to use
